A new trailer has just been released for True Legend, an upcoming film by influential director and fight choreographer Yuen Woo-ping. Yuen made his name as a director back in the ’70s with movies like Drunken Master, but has recently focused more on action choreography, for films including The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Kill Bill and Kung Fu Hustle. True Legend is his first directorial effort since 1996. As you might guess, it is a martial arts actioner.
Vincent Zhao (Once Upon a Time in China), Zhou Xun, Jay Chou (Kato from The Green Hornet), Michelle Yeoh and David Carradine all star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

According to multiple news sources, actor David Carradine has been found dead in a hotel room in Bangkok. Carradine’s personal manager says the death is being investigated, but provided no other details. Carradine was apparently in the process of filming his latest film, Stretch. This article from the BBC purports to have more details regarding the circumstances of his death.
The son of John Carradine, David Carradine is probably best known in the U.S. for his role as Kwai Chang Cane in the television show Kung Fu, although more recently, he starred as the character of Bill in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill films. He also appeared briefly in Death Race, as well as in Crank: High Voltage as the sinister Poon Dong. Carradine’s voluminous filmography boasts his participation in more than 200 films, TV shows, and TV movies, and he has worked with some of the best directors in the industry, including Martin Scorsese and Ingmar Bergman.
I can imagine a writer standing in the big office of a studio executive’s office. He pitches this idea for a comedy where Cavemen who yearns for more out of life than sticks, stones and raw meat. It could be a good movie, right? Wrong.
Homo Erectus is directed by Adam Rifkin and stars Adam Rifkin, Ali Larter, David Carradine, Talia Shire, Hayes MacArthur, Gary Busey, Tom Arnold, Giuseppe Anddrews, Miles Dougal, Ron Jeremy and Carol Alt.
